Finding the Best Pumpkin Spice Essential Oils

If you love pumpkin spice but are turned off by all the pumpkin spice drinks laden with sugar and caffeine, there’s another way to get that same aroma: pumpkin spice essential oils.

To find the best bets, we tried out several brands in a diffuser—and then asked the pumpkin spice enthusiasts to pick their favorites.

As with other pumpkin spice products, some pumpkin spice essential oils are more pumpkin-y than others. Some have more notes of cinnamon, while others emphasize the nutmeg. Yes, this a personal preference, but here are the ones we think are the best bets:

Best for Diffuser

Like autumn in a glass bottle
Wow! Smells just like pumpkin pie. We loved this scent, which had a warm and cozy feel when put in a diffuser. Caveat: some folks thought the nutmeg scent notes were too much.

Also great for making soap
This spice set of six oils would make a great gift. We loved the pumpkin pie oil, but the gingerbread was also a winner.

Best For Candles

Nice gift idea
The pumpkin patch essential oil in this set is fantastic, but we also liked the caramel. And snickerdoodle. The blend of nutmeg and cinnamon is heavenly.

Best Tried & True Brand

Wonderful, pumpkin aroma
Loved the scent of this essential oil mist—super easy to use, if you already have the diffuser. Also nice: can adjust the frequency and duration of the mist.
